Bentley Team HTP announced today the names of nine drivers that will race the team’s Continental GT3s in race series across Europe.
Maximilian Buhk will headline Bentley Team HTP’s lineup, with the German driver continuing with the team for his fourth consecutive season. Buhk is one of Bentley Motors’ works drivers for the 2015 season.
Experienced drivers Jeroen Bleekemolen, Harold Primat, Christian Menzel and Lance David Arnold will join Buhk as the squad starts a busy pan-European race program.
The four other drivers joining Bentley Team HTP will form the new Bentley Junior Team. 2014 Blancpain Sprint Series Silver Cup champion Vincent Abril moves from Belgian Audi Club Team WRT.
Fabian Hamprecht, who raced an Audi in the ADAC GT Masters last season, Porsche Cup driver Clemens Schmid and 2014 HTP Motorsport driver Luca Stolz will complete the lineup.
“We start with a strong driver line up and a good mix of young talents and experienced pros into our first season with Bentley,” team principal Norbert Brückner said.
“Young talents have always been a integral part of the team, therefore we have created our signature Bentley Junior Team.
“The performance of our Bentley Continental GT3 was promising in the first pre season tests and with this driver line up, we are well prepared for the season.”
The team announced late last year that it will compete in the Blancpain Sprint and Endurance Series, as well as the ADAC GT Masters with Continental GT3s.
Additional drivers and the driver pairings will be announced at a later date.
